Terms and Conditions

Please read these terms and conditions, which apply to the provision of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy consultations and sessions at my home, at a hired therapy room, or online via Zoom.  They are designed to protect your interests as a client.

Therapy Consultations and Fees

There will be a free initial consultation lasting between 40 minutes and 1 hour.  No therapy is given during this session. The purpose of this meeting is to gather information from you, the client, on the reasons why you are seeking Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and provide information to you about the brain science behind Solution Focused Hypnotherapy.

Thereafter, each weekly therapy consultation lasts for approximately one hour an agreed fee per session. 

Medical Conditions

A medical questionnaire is conducted at the start of the initial consultation to establish any contra-indications to treatment. It is also used to establish a treatment plan.

Should your medical status change, please update Lara Tozer, JoyBeings Hypnotherapy, of any new medications, change of or new medical diagnosis or conditions. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is not intended to replace medical advice or consultation with your GP or other health care professional. The information discussed during treatment should not be considered as medical advice. If you have any doubts or concerns about your health, you should seek advice from a medical doctor.



A full advance payment should be made prior to each consultation. Presently, debit or credit cards cannot be accepted. Please make payment via bank transfer in advance of each session.


Cancellation and Punctuality

If you wish to change, postpone, or cancel an appointment, 24 hours’ notice must be given, or the cost of the full session is payable. Every effort will be made to reschedule if possible.

Please contact Lara Tozer, JoyBeings Hypnotherapy, by email or message or telephone on (44) 07585 603 101 to make your cancellation.

If you wish to discontinue your course of therapy, you do not have to give a reason. Any remaining balance for courses paid for in advance will be refunded.

If you are running more than 10 minutes late the session cannot go ahead and you will be charged for the session.



Any information collected from you as a client or potential client, including your contact details, will be held in the strictest confidence. The details that you disclose are used solely for the purpose of providing you, the client, with the highest levels of service. No information will be passed on to any external parties without your express permission.

Where express permission is given to share information with an external party, Lara Tozer, JoyBeings Hypnotherapy, will only supply client-approved information she believes is in the best interests of the client.

Exceptional circumstances of confidentiality include where there is a criminal or civil court case where a court order has demanded disclosure, and where there is good cause to believe that failing to disclose information would cause danger or harm to you the client, or others.  Child protection issues fall into this category.

The written notes made by Lara Tozer, JoyBeings Hypnotherapy, during sessions will be held for 8 years from the point of completion of your therapy in compliance with GDPR guidelines and for insurance purposes and you can request a copy of these notes at any point within that time frame.

The sharing of anonymous case histories is sometimes made to supervisors and peer support groups as part of supervision and/or Continuous Professional Development (CPD) requirements.


Standards of behaviour

During the course of any therapy, Lara Tozer, JoyBeings Hypnotherapy will treat you with respect and not abuse the trust that you put in her. You will respect any person at the therapy practice, including her and her property.  You agree to come to the sessions not under the influence of alcohol or recreational drugs. If any conduct that contravenes these standards of behaviour, Lara Tozer reserves the right to cancel the session and any further therapy sessions.



A well-motivated client is highly likely to achieve realistic goals.  However, it is unethical to guarantee success and therefore no guarantees of the outcome of therapy are offered.  Lara Tozer, JoyBeings Hypnotherapy, guarantees to apply her training, expertise, and experience to your issues with the aim of achieving agreed goals in as reasonable a time as possible.  Estimates of the number of sessions required to treat a condition, given at the enquiry stage or during the first consultation, are given on the basis of the information presented at that time. Estimates are only rough guidelines and are subject to change.


Last amendment date: November 2022
